Had a lovely surprise this week. The lovely Emma Gleeson mentioned me and Living Lightly in Ireland as part of her interview with Jenny Green on 2FM, one of Ireland’s nationwide radio stations. It took a bit of detective work for me to find out that Emma’s mention was the reason for a slew of new followers. Thanks so much Emma and so to return the favour I’m going to mention her forthcoming book about sustainable decluttering called Stuff Happens.
